I think we should look to The Queen's birthday storm for guidance. The Two catamarans caught in that storm both lay ahull through out the storm. Regardless of the wave size, both boats survived without injuries or serious damage. Almost all the monohulls caught in the storm were rolled and dismasted, and lives were lost.
